Where are the airbag sensors located on my 2006 Silverado? I'm getting a "service airbag" on the DIC plus a warning light. Just want to check connections.

"Inflatable Restraint Front End Sensor - Left (w/o HVY)
On the left front of the vehicle by the core support

Inflatable Restraint Front End Sensor - Right (w/o HVY)
On the right front of the vehicle by the core support

Inflatable Restraint Front End Sensor (HVY)
Below the radiator core support in the center of the vehicle "


Looks like they are on the bottom of the radiator support. RPO HVY has only one sensor and w/o HVY, two sensors, one left side and one right side.

This link has a picture of the sensor

Get the codes checked before you over analyze things.

Thank you, I appreciate it. I also found a sensor under the passenger seat.

The sensor under the passenger seat is used to detect if a passenger is present. I think it only allows the passenger side airbag to deploy if someone is seated in the seat. As stated, you need to get the codes scanned to see which sensor is defective.

The defective one is the one under the passenger seat, I had it scanned, it said something about a harness connection error. I have an appointment at the dealership Wednesday. I appreciate all the help.

My 2004 had the same symptoms. I believe it was a 15A fuse in the underhood box had blown causing the lights to come on.

I'm getting a "service airbag" warning on my 2006 SS, intermittently - seems to happen far less when the ambient temp is hot. A guy that does all the computer work for my boss's cars said it's a common issue with grounds at the driver side frame rail ahead of the door, said to clean them up real well. I took a peek and found two ground points there, cleaned them, sprayed with DeOxit and reinstalled nice and tight. Unfortunately, didn't fix the error, so I'll have to get it scanned and see what the codes are.

Just an update. I wanted to give it some time before I mentioned anything. I took my truck to the dealership and they worked their magic and said I needed to replace a bunch of stuff to the cost of $900. I told them to put it back together and give it to me because I couldn't afford that. Since I got it back I haven't had any issues with it at all. So my original scan that said it was a harness connection error must have been correct and when the dealership had it all apart and put it back together it must have fixed that problem. Maybe it'll pop back up as an issue and maybe it wont, I just wanted to post an update.

Thanks for the update. Sometimes all it takes is to unplug a connector and reconnect it.
